Grand National Festival Tips Day One

The opening race of the week is the Manifesto Novices’ Chase, a two and a half mile test that demands a blend of speed and stamina. Aintree is a sharp track when the ground rides on the good side and with little rain forecast in the lead up to the meeting, it should be far quicker than Cheltenham was.

The first of the feature races is up next in the shape of the Betway Bowl. The equivalent of the Cheltenham Gold Cup at the meeting, it is a vastly different test here. In stark contrast, it’s a contest that has gone to an older horse far more than the Cheltenham Blue Riband with eleven of the last twenty-eight winners aged ten or older.

The Aintree Hurdle is a two and a half mile contest, a Grade 1 that some may argue is lacking at Cheltenham. Morley Street won four consecutive renewals in the early 1990’s with Supasundae stepping up to land this in 2019.

The first sighting of the famous fences comes with the Foxhunters before the Red Rum handicap chase over two miles where a frenetic pace is almost guaranteed. The opening day closes with a fillies and mares bumper that helps to add value to potential broodmares of the future.
